The United Bedroom Confederacy

7 Conversations

Power to the People!

Everybody needs their own space. A space seperate from the rush, harshness and most of all politics of the modern day world. For many people the world over that space is the bedroom. A place for you, and perhaps a select population, to relax away from the rest of the world.

But there's a problem. Your bedroom is not quite your own. It is still part of the political world, and therefore you are not entirely free. There is, however, a solution. You can declare your bedroom 1a People's Republic, and join the United Bedroom Confederacy (UBC). Who knows, get enough members and we might even appear on the map.


Equal Rights for Socks!

Odd socks

The members of the UBC express concern to the treatment of socks in the world. Many are miss-treated, unappreciated and forced to spend their days in a heap under the bed. Sockism cannot be accepted in a forward thinking society. Members of the UBC must be prepared to grant asylum to miss-treated socks, especially the ones that are lost in the washer. Together, we will erradicate the monstosity that is sockism.

The UBC Dictionary

The UBC believe that longer words are better than shorter words as they generally sound more impressive than their shorted counterparts. Consequently, a list of terminology is being constructed.
